Tickets are now on sale for the annual Empty Bowls of Owensboro, Kentucky fundraiser. This year’s event will take place Thursday, April 24 at 6 pm in the Saints Joseph and Paul Catholic Church Parish Hall, 514 East 4th Street. This local event is part of a national movement to raise funds for those in need of food.
Your ticket allows you to select a ceramic bowl from hundreds of handcrafted bowls made especially for this event by local artisans and students of Brescia University. Brescia’s Art Department has supplied the clay, glaze, and location for the bowls to be created. Each participant at the event will then use their selected bowl to receive one of four soups made available by local chefs and churches, including soup made by First Presbyterian Church, The Journey Church, Kim Jagoe with Simple Path, and the Campbell Club. Available this year will be one vegan soup and three non-vegan. Student volunteers from the Brescia Clay Club will wash your bowl for you when you are finished and it is yours to take home at the end of the evening.
Tickets are $15 and may be purchased in advance by cash or check beginning March 4 through April 25 at the First Presbyterian Church Office (1328 Griffith Ave) or at the Brescia University Public Relations Office, located in office 207 (second floor) in the Lechner Graduate Center (311 West 7th Street). If all tickets are not presold, they will be available at the door. You are highly encouraged to purchase your ticket in advance.
